Document Overview

The federal government's Fair Work Legislation Amendment (Closing Loopholes No. 2) Act 2023 was passed on 12 February 2024. It contains provisions relating to the "right to disconnect", which will come into effect 6 months following the passage of the bill into law. This policy is designed to entrench a simplified version of those requirements to allow employers to comply with the legislation. It can also be used before the legislation becomes effective, in order to provide employees with a better work-life balance sooner rather than later, or to prepare ahead for the new requirements.

What does the Right to Disconnect Policy include?

  • Scope (to whom this applies).
  • The substance of the right, including exceptions.
  • Whom to contact for queries.
  • The relationship between the policy and legislation.
